“One for the road!” The most unusual thing about this pub must be the opening hours, because on some nights, guests are let in until four am, on others even until six in the morning. In the Klimperkiste, they don’t only serve beer, spirits or cocktails, the menu is also worth a look with more than 60 different dishes. For a quick drink, there is a comfortable bar with a view of the open kitchen; if you want to stay longer, you can take a seat in the back area of the restaurant.
It isn’t easy to describe the atmosphere – too restless for a restaurant, to clean and professionally run for a dive. One thing is clear: the Klimperkiste has been offering sound hospitality for many years, and is thus a popular drop-in for all types: the later the evening, the more mixed the guests, the more lively and chaotic the place.
Maybe it’s the diversity and lived pluralism that makes this pub so loveable: beer drinkers are happy about the wide selection of draft beers, from Duckstein and Guinness to Lübzer Pils. And those who like to drink sweet cocktails à la “Swimming Pool” or “Sex on the Beach”, are just as welcome as professional barflies, who will find an astonishing range of the best gins, vodkas and whiskies. If you get hungry, you can order daring creations such as “Chita Banana”, with banana, ham, gouda and tartar sauce, but also a reassuring down-to-earth vegetable bake or goulash soup.
The secret behind the Klimperkiste is that it doesn’t have one. Everyone is welcome and can enjoy the warm, professional service. It doesn’t matter if guests are laying the ground stone for a long pub crawl, or want to have a nightcap – they won’t be disappointed.
